Glad to Be Here – Hidden treasure of Gomirje monastery

Glad to Be Here (Bolje vas našli) is a platform for meetings, socialising and exchange, initiated as part of the Rijeka – European Capital of Culture 2020 programme, encompassing 27 neighbourhoods, and envisaged as a visibility and support platform for all the neighbourhoods of Primorje-Gorski Kotar County and beyond.

The treasury of Gomirje monastery contains invaluable church and cultural treasures belonging to this westernmost  monastery of the Serbian Orthodox Church, which have been collected and preserved for centuries. Books, vestments and crosses are just some of the items found in the monastery treasury and library, including a special collection of metal valuables, unique examples of church goldsmith and silverware craft and also paintings with liturgical symbols as motifs.

Portions of the treasury are located in Karlovac and Zagreb, and our initiative is to return them to the Monastery as a permanent exhibition, testifying to this centuries-old hidden treasure.
